Review

Praise for the Matched Trilogy:

"This futuristic fable of love and free will asks: Can there be freedom without choice? The tale of Cassia's journey from acceptance to rebellion will draw you in and leave you wanting more." --Cassandra Clare, New York Times-bestselling author of The Infernal Devices and The Mortal Instruments series

"A superb dystopian romance." --The Wall Street Journal

"The hottest YA title to hit bookstores since The Hunger Games." --Entertainment Weekly

"A fierce, unforgettable page-turner." --Kirkus, starred review

"Condie's enthralling and twisty dystopian plot is well served by her intriguing characters and fine writing....Cassia's metamorphosis is gripping and satisfying." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Condie’s prose is immediate and unadorned, with sudden pings of lush lyricism [and] reveals seeming to arrive on almost every page." --Kirkus, starred review

"Distinct...authentic...poetic." --School Library Journal

"Love triangle + struggle against the powers that be = perfect escape." --MTV.com

(My wife's review). This is a series tailor-made for Hunger Games readers. Romance and action in a Big Brother society, and I'm not giving anything away to tell you that it starts with a teen girl, Cassia, who is shown her expected marriage match but for a brief second another boy's face appears on the screen. Hmmm... The story builds from there, each book adding a new layer and new voices to the narrative. Addictive reading.

Book 1-Matched- I really liked the start to this trilogy. It gave a great set up to how life has turned out some time into the future and it gave me a true sense of suffocation. I know that the characters in the book didn't feel that way for the most part because that's what they grew up knowing. But the author did a great job at making me feel what it would be like to live in that situation. Matched was the background and build up book. It gave the basic background for how this lifestyle came to be and it was a perfect subtle build up for what's about to come. How even in a seemingly perfect society nothing is truly as perfect as it seems. And how in a way living this way seemed more terrifying than living in chaos.

Book 2- Crossed- I liked the adventure in this book and Cassia's slow discovery of the world outside her world. In her eyes everything she was seeing was so new, breathtaking and terrifying at times and I enjoyed the discoveries and endured the sadness right along with her. In this book you start to see the true colors of the Society and the Rising and neither one gives a great impression. You see how the Society is quick to try and extinguish anything that doesn't fit perfectly into their tiny, shinny bubble and it's a terrifying thought to think that at any moment they could deem one of your actions unsuitable for the society and have you shipped off to God knows where to fend for yourself without batting an eye. The Rising wasn't much better. They seemed to trust very few people and felt just as controlling an manipulative as the Society.
This book is also where I started to dislike the series a little. I read somewhere that the authors favorite character to write was Indie...and it was painfully obvious.

After reading and rereading the Hunger Games and Divergent series a hundred times I was looking for something that would be similar and not a knock off. This series really pull me into the story, made me fall in love with the characters, the world, and time they lived in. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to escape reality, government conspiracies, and loves triangle love stories.

I bought these books for my niece's 15th birthday gift and thought I'd read the first book to make sure the contect was appropriate for her. Little did I know I'd fall in love with the characters and couldn't put the books down! My neice is going to love them and now we'll have something else to talk about. Can't wait for the movies to come out!

I exchanged a book I received as a Christmas gift (that I had already read) for the first of this trilogy. I am so glad I did. Once I finished the first book I downloaded the second two on my Kindle and read them in one night. The first book is definitely the best, the next two a little weaker.I always have to see where the story ends so I continued through. The concept is interesting and the characters will draw you in. I used the concepts from the book to start some interesting conversations with my kids!

Book 1:
I would like to start by congratulating Ally Condie in doing such an amazing job with this book. I think that it was very well written and I can see why Disney has purchased the rights for the film adaptation. Even though at the moment, the majority of the books I am reading are in the YA category and these are indeed the ones I most enjoy reading, I have noticed that YA novels (especially from the dystopian genre as this one is) are not as poetically elaborated as books like "Warm Bodies" and this one were.

I actually finished it in one sitting. The events in the story unfold at a very quick pace, which I love in a book because it keeps me entertained and fully engaged.

Although many people have described this novel as being very original, I kind of found it to be very similar to "Farenheight 451"! I was actually very intrigued about the death process for the elderly in this society, which reminded me somewhat about the culture of the Eskimos. After you finish reading this novel, you can check a little reference of this and get a sense of what I am talking about: [...]..

The story is set within a dystopian world in which your choice about everything has been taken away from you. Even in matters of the heart you must marry whom the society has chosen for you, hence the name of the novel, "Matched". The female protagonist (Cassia) is matched with two individuals though, and she must decide which path to take. The only thing I am going to say about this is that the love triangle in this story is complicated even for me as a reader. I think it is the first time I experience my soul being played tug of war with.
